Veedersburg considers a digital ordinance system

VEEDERSBURG, Ind. — Council members heard a proposal Tuesday about converting the town’s ordinance book to a digital format.

Steve Egly with Sunshine Publishing of Battle Ground, Ind., said his company creates digital versions of a town’s ordinance book. Sunshine Publications have worked with multiple Indiana municipalities.

Egly explained the original paper ordinance book is still kept, but the digital book is much more accessible and easier to use.

The company charges $12.50 per document page and has a minimum order of $250. Sunshine created a proposal for the town last year, but it expired. At the time, the proposal was for 1,225 pages of documents to be converted to digital for a cost of $8,400. Egly said since then the town has probably created several more pages of documents, but he estimates a new proposal would still be under $9,000.

Councilman Troy Finley supported the idea, noting “it would save a lot of lawyer fees and time.” Town President Ken Smith asked Egly to create a new proposal so the council could consider it at a future meeting.

In other business, town council members:

Heard from electric Superintendent George Gowens that two of his department’s trucks are having problems. The digger truck has a leak on its air brake. The bucket truck needs to have its exhaust system regenerated. Councilman Steve Cates recommended that a representative from International dealer in Lafayette come to Veedersburg to hook their computer into the truck to verify that it is the problem.

Learned the electric department was able to safely repair the Christmas light tree on the water tower. The council commends the electric department for repairing the lights and “keeping the 55- to 60-year holiday tradition going Veedersburg” said President Ken Smith.

Heard from Veedersburg Revitalization Association member Crystal Brewer that the annual Christmas parade will take place in at 1 p.m. EST Dec. 1.

Voted and re-approved Terry Shields to continue as the fire chief of the Van Buren township fire department for the next two years.

Heard from resident Bob Thomas about his concern for people practicing target shooting with bows and arrows and crossbows in their backyards in town. Like guns, bow and arrows and crossbows are prohibited from being fired in town.

What’s next

Veedersburg Town Council members will meet at 6 p.m. EST Nov. 27.
